Caramel Popcorn

Every December I make a few batches of Caramel Popcorn.  It is so, so yummy and very easy.  This tastes way better than anything you can buy.  One of the kids would like to make this for her teacher.

Caramel Popcorn

3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margerine
3 tbsp corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp vanilla
10 cups popped popcorn

Combine the first 4 ingredients over low heat until butter is melted.  Cook without stirring for 3 minutes.  Add baking soda and vanilla.  Stir well then pour onto popcorn and mix evenly until coated.  Bake for 15 minutes at 300 F.  Break into pieces when cool.  Try not to eat the whole batch in one sitting!
